What Are Your Pet Peeves?

Omg! I agree on the repeating yourself thing. What I hate most is when you say somethin and the person says "huh?" And you say nothing and they repeat what you said word for word.

***Tameka***
People who say "like" too much.
People who talk as though everything is a question. You know, their voice goes up at the end of the sentence. "So I like went with Beth like to the mall? And like this guy tried to sell us Snuggees? And like Beth totally flipped him off."
I hate, hate, hate, hate, HATE it when people talk on their cell phones while driving or while in public - I don't want to hear it!

Women's boobs hanging out of their tops. I've got a nice pair of my own and don't need to see yours...thankyouverymuch. Keep 'em covered up ladies!

It annoys me when people refuse to be resourceful. Do you really need every answer in life handed to you on a silver platter with a side of fries?

At any given point in time there are usually 5+ active threads on the exact same topic!

nitpicking

flattery

entitlement

people who habitually blow up little things way out of proportion.

People who complain about their problems but refuse to do anything to change them. Ex: people who live well beyond their means and refuse to give up anything when it catches up to them.

People who don't have enough sense to know you shouldn't complain or whine to someone who's much worse off. Using money example again, someone who has brand new top of the line everything whining that they're broke to someone who truly is poor.

People who constantly make obviously bad choices and expect others to bail them out.

The phrase "money is no object." I usually hear them complaining money problems later.

People who think their life is the standard for the way things work out. It worked out this way for them, therefore that's the way it will work for everyone else.
People with flagrant disregard for the explicit rules of parking their effing cars.

There's a deli I go to for lunch pretty regularly-- couple times a week. They have a ridiculously small parking lot (like, seven spaces that they share with four other businesses) but there is additional parking about twenty paces away in the adjacent lot. To get from that lot from the deli, you cross the driveway to a parking garage for a nearby office building. That driveway has clearly visible NO PARKING AT ANY TIME signs. It also has a yellow curb. I almost always park in the adjacent lot and walk across. It takes approximately 45 seconds. Near about every day, some jackwad is parked in the driveway, and nine times out of ten they're parked directly in front of the NO PARKING AT ANY TIME sign. And I want to smack every goddamned one of them. I want to say, "Hey, yeah, you go ahead, that sign applies to everyone BUT YOU. Absolutely."
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
Stolen.
Lawd, I have a few of 'em!

When I'm walking/sitting/standing/doing whatever BY MYSELF and someone comes up to me and says "smile!" or "cheer up!" I'm sitting here alone!! No one said anything funny. If I was always sitting here smiling all alone, someone would commit me to a mental facility eventually.

Like someone else said, someone that pulls out in front of me in traffic then goes SO slow.

Sunglasses indoors, or fashioned into your hair as an accesory. Sunglasses are sunglasses, head bands are head bands. You can get them for $1. Sunglasses do not look cool in any indoor setting - you look creepy.

When people put their hands in front of their mouth then talk to me. I can't understand you, and even if I can, I will pretend I don't to get you to move them. Especially this at the table.

When someone asks someone something, and they pretend they don't hear when I KNOW they did. If someone talks to you, acknowledge it. Even if it's to say "just a second."

At work, when I go to pour milk and it is already on the counter. Milk goes in the fridge, not on the counter.

When you're having a conversation with someone and they are looking everywhere but at you.

When someone calls me and they are busy doing a million other things.
"Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”
Sloppiness. I really cannot stand sloppy dressers. Or slouchers. Or mumblers, or people who avoid eye contact at all costs ... pretty much anyone who isn't proud of who they are!

Also, it's not specifically the phrase "money can't buy happiness", but that general attitude. Only people with money think this way! When you're poor, and a rich person is acting that way to you, it's so insulting. Maybe a nice night out, some new shoes, and the bills paid makes a person happy--I know it sure contributes to MY happiness!

And one of the biggest things I take issue with is when people complain about something without doing anything about it. You want to complain about your weight? Sure. No problem? But not WHILE you're eating a giant plate of pasta in alfredo sauce at the cheesecake factory, and following it up with dessert. Or you keep saying you have no money? But then you have a ridiculously extravagant birthday party for your kid? Well, I'm not going to believe you have no money anymore! The fact that you choose to spend your money on random extravagant things instead of the basics like food does NOT mean you have no money. It means you are spending it inappropriately. So go ahead and start complaining about how big of an irresponsible moron you are, but don't complain about having no money!

People who don't pick up their feet when they walk. They drag their shoes and shlep along scrapping their feet on the ground. Sooooooooooo annoying!

Or the guy next to me on the bus flicking his finger back and forth over his bag for TWENTY MINUTES to some song in his head. ***scrich, scritch, scritch, (pause) scritchscritchscritch*** repeat ad nauseam.

It's Murphy's law of errand running, the quicker you try to be, the more likely you're going to get held up. If your going in real quick for just a gallon of milk, you're gonna run into someone, or get stuck in a long line with that person who has to depute prices, change their mind, have people fetch things for them and pay with 3 different methods.

People who commit crimes and refuse to be ashamed.
Pedestrians that walk down the center of the aisle in parking lots, making it impossible for cars to pass them.

Not to mention that oftentimes those signs are there to protect your car from being beat up by flow of traffic (large trucks with blind spots, for instance), I just don't see any legit reason to put your car in a no parking zone.
